    Without Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, Cowboys' Receiving Corps is ... Yuck.

    ​The question isn't if Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo is going to play against the Washington Redskins Monday night. (He will.) It's who the heck is he gonna throw to? (Who knows?) With Miles Austin out (hamstring) and Dez Bryant iffy (thigh), the Cowboys are in danger of being lef ... More >>

    Yeah, But What if Tramaine Brock Had Seen Miles Austin's Fumble?

    ​Tony Romo was gutsy last Sunday in San Francisco, but because the Cowboys lost he wasn't heroic. Jason Garrett should be fired for his insane 3rd-and-2 play call in the final minute that led to the loss to the 49ers. Dan Bailey might be a former NFL kicker. Jesse Holley is just a ... More >>

    Cowboys 27, 49ers 24 (OT): My Top 10 Observer-ations

    ​10. Like me, were you scared to death that Jesse Holley was going to fumble while holding the ball up in premature exclamation at the end of his 77-yard overtime catch? 9. Rob Ryan may be a defensive genius, but it doesn't show when he has Anthony Spencer trying to cover tight end ... More >>

    NFL Pre-Season Football -- Cowboys 24, Broncos 23: My Top 10 Observer-ations

    ​10. When could you tell it was preseason? Late in the first half Broncos' quarterback Tim Tebow scrambled across field, broke two tackles and eventually threw a pass down to Dallas' 5.

    Keith Brooking Isn't Ready to Retire

    In a related story, Dallas Cowboys fans respectfully disagree. Well, don't we? Brooking says he has something left in the tank, but we all saw him blocked out of the play - hell, out of the picture - on the Eagles' clock-killing, game-winning drive last Sunday.

    Better Football? Dallas Cowboys vs. Dallas Desire

    ​Woe are the Dallas Cowboys. I still don't think their season is kaput, but it doesn't look good: *At 1-3, they're firmly in the NFC East cellar. *Sunday they play at the Minnesota Vikings, an equally desperate 1-3 team. *You'd think the Cowboys would have the motivation factor, what with B ...
